rove's whole strategy is he found a way to convince the cuckoo's nest that george w. bush was their guy. and to convince evangelicals that george w. bush was your guy. and convince the business wing of the party and say george w. bush is your guy. he sold them a bill of goods, and what they got back was medicare part d, a ballooning deficit, and a financial crisis that devastated the country, a failed war -- a war in iraq that was ill-advised to put it mildly, and now the cuckoo's nest who he cultivated as the ground troops, the shock troops to win elections in 2000 and 2004, they think they're in charge and they're not going to listen to him saying they're not. >> what was the big thing with karl rove? did he start a war to celebrate the tax cut or have a tax cut to celebrate the war. i mean, he put it all together. joy put it right. i forgot to mention the prescription drug thing thrown in without financing it. >> right, right, right. and, you know, he did do a great job in the ots mobilizing and energizing the right wing base to get behind george w. bush, and then he and others did a
't be so critical of george w. bush and dick cheney until he knew exactly the challenges they faced every day. and he was so judgmental. he was so self-righteous. he was so damning of george w. bush, suggesting that he didn't respect the constitution and checks and balances. and my gosh, mika, what he's doing, at least in my mind, is even more chilling. >> but also, joe, george w. bush was elected on a platform of saying we're not going to get involved in nation building. we're going to worry about our own affairs and clinton had done too much nation building and then he turned into the biggest nation-builder president we've had in sometime. >> after 9/11, right. i don't think he ever accused, mika, bill clinton of shredding the constitution. >> i mean, look -- >> which he was accused of doing. which he accused george w. bush of doing. >> i have to say, i was definitely on the critical end of things, as were members of my family. we were very, very, very concerned about how far the bush administration pushed the boundaries of not only, you know, what is constitution but what is morally ri
coastal areas. >>> all new at 5:30, former president george h.w. bush is the latest victim of computer hacking. >> the hacker gained access to confidential e-mails between members of the bush families and their friends. >> reporter: anyone with an e- mail account knows the risks of a cyberattack. >> it happened millions of times a day. hacking is an everyday occurrence. >> reporter: but it turns out, it can happen to former presidents too. an unidentified hacker was able to gain access to private photos and e-mails between members of the bush family, between george h.w. bush and george w. bush. the secret service is investigating how they gained access to three years of personal e-mail. the hacked e-mails included phone numbers and home addresses for dozens of members of the bush family. even more shocking, the security code for george h.w. bush's home in dallas. they posted several photos online, including one of the older bush in the hospital. former presidents have in person secret service protection. but how could this security breach have happened online? former agent brad garrett
targeting the bush family including george h. w. bush and george w. bush. paa hacker is claiming private information including e-mails including photographs and contact information for dozens of extended bush family relatives. a former fbi agent said the risk of cyber attacks is growing for everyone. >> it happens millions of times a day. hacking is an everyday occurrence. >> a spokesperson for former president george h. w. bush says the family will not comment because the issue is under criminal investigation. >> a big development in a phone hacking scandal in england. rupert murdoch's newspaper, the publisher has settled a 134 lawsuits. court officials did not release the names or the money amounts. it is the second group of lawsuits to be settled after it was discovered that the news of the world tabloid hacked into celebrities phones and voice mails. the case is that not been settled will go to court in june. greg tebowing is telling airline operators expect delays for deliveries of the 787 dreamliner. the delivery of airplanes scheduled for april and june would likely not make it. m
wrote in this week. it brought back, said the writer memos written by george w. bush to justify illegal wiretapping, kidnapping abuse and torture. now, the "new york times" is starting to compare the obama administration to george w. bush, this is significant shift. >> the other thing even the nation's gregg mitchell did not make the issue about the drones and the drone bases in saudi arabia as much of an issue which i thought he should have. particularly because 9/11 was supposedly, according to some of the terrorists, because we had bases in saudi arabia. that whole thing was totally looked over. >> cal put his finger on it. after the election. they weren't going mess up obama's bed before the election. now, that the partisan mission of getting him re-elected is completed they can go back to being liberals and worry about due process and where is the aclu. it has been a field day for left wing papers like mother jones and guardian has been on this. they had these reports years ago that the "new york times" and "washington post" weren't interested in. >> what they are focusing on is th
impressive. >> it is a continuation of the policy that george w. bush laid down after 9/11, to pursue them wherever they are. notion thathe drones have killed civilians -- it is not just drones that do it. if you fire artillery, you might hit civilians. if you talk about american citizens being targeted abroad, isn't it true that during world war ii, you had some americans who volunteered also with the ss? >> correct, yes. >> this is not groundbreaking. it is something we will have to think through, the traditional way or extrajudicial way of handling these targets. but to say that we're not going to pursue them with drones to me is silly. >> shouldn't there be some place you go if you do target an american citizen, some place you go, some secret court -- i don't care, like the intelligence court, where you say,, we are going to do this, we need a a legal finding? >> there probably is in some cases, said that might work, but a great many times you don't have time. you find out about this fairly late and you just need to do it. it is a question of boots on the ground or drones. it is a very
to convince the nest george w. bush is really your guy and then to go to the business wing of the republican party and say guess what, george w. bush is your guy. this guy passed off neo conservatism as conservatism, passed off the idea of endless war and nation building to conservatives. he sold them a bill of goods and what they got back is medicare part d, ballooning deficit and crisis that devastated the country. a failed war in iraq that it was ill-advised to put it mildly and now, the coocoo's nest as he cullty mated to in -- cultivated to win elections in 2000 and 2004 think they're in charge and not going to listen to him saying they're not. >> what was the big thing with karl rove? did he start a war to celebrate the tax cut or have a tax cut to celebrate the war? he put it all together, joy put it right. i forget to mention the prescription drug thing thrown in without financing it. >> right. he did do a great job you know, mobilizing and energizing the right wing base to get behind bush and he and the others did a great thing in the last few years under barack obama getting them t
have lower discretionary spending than we've had under george w. bush and what do we have now? the question what do they want? close military bases, right? gut medicare. something they talk about, but isn't actually popular when you, what, literally cut medicare. >> then when you end up cutting medicare. in terms of the sequester, if and when the president does address it tomorrow, is not supposed to focus on the defense piece, but on the nondefense piece. the programs that target, you know, young mothers, children. interesting the fact that he is not going to sort of the middle on this one, which is to say to talk at length about the defense cuts, but really the harm to low income families is definitely a choice. >> defense cuts, there's a lot that can be cut without weakening our country. there really is. that is an enormous, enormous, you know, chunk of revenue, as everybody knows. this is -- it would all be easier if we had more growth. that's the overwhelming story here. it's like if you have more growth, everything is better. you know, everything is lighter. it's sunnier
's considered a smart guy in politics is he found a way to convince the cuckoo's nest that george w. bush was really their guy and convinced evangelicals that george w. bush is your guy and convinced the right wing. he passed off neoconservatism as conservatism. he passed off the idea of endless war and nation building. he sold them a bill of goods, and what they got back was medicare part d, a ballooning deficit, and a financial crisis that devastated the country, a failed war -- a war in iraq that was ill-advised to put it mildly, and now the cuckoo's nest who he cultivated as the ground troops, they think they're in charge and they're not going to listen to him saying they're not. >> what was the big thing with karl rove? did he start a war to celebrate the tax cut or have a tax cut to celebrate the war. i mean, he put it all together. i forgot to mention the prescription drug thing thrown in without financing it. >> right, right, right. and, you know, he did do a great job, you know, mobilizing and energizing the right wing base to get behind george w. bush, and then he and others did
, joy. >> george w. bush thought it was ironic. don't forget, maybe i shouldn't be crude on the air -- >> don't. >> okay, i won't be. >> george bush had another name for karl rove. >> oh, yeah. >> it's something you would find in a farm field that was much less favorable. >> blossom was part of it. >> w. wasn't always e nam ret of karl rove. but i think it's gotten away from him. >> let's get back to something we were talking about, which is the democratization of the republican party. in this sense, they can no longer be ruled, joy. they're so angered up by what they've been fed, this anger fesation that's been planted for so many years now about farmers, imgrants, minorities, government, taxes. they've got so many hatred. they used to hate communism, which was pretty healthy. they're not going to listen to people like dick luger. they not going to vote for bob bennett. they're looking for someone way out in the sage where you shall. >> that's absolutely right. karl rove was "the brain" and was a smart guy in the party back when the far right was allowed in the house but they could
of the george w. bush administration. so you're going to have a brand-new president who bans torture, but then you're going to put a guy who was there for the whole torture regime in charge of the cia? yeah, there was an effort made to make the case that john brennan had been opposed to the torture methods while he had been at the cia, but nothing in his known professional tenure backed that up. at least not enough to save his nomination. and john brennan withdrew his name from consideration that year and he did not run the cia during barack obama's first term. instead, he got the world's greatest consolation prize. he became a very close white house adviser to the president, his white house counterterrorism adviser, and he was there at a time when the cia and the united states generally were not known for torturing people. we are not known for torturing people anymore. what we are known for in the obama era is not torturing people, but rather killing them. on the same day that president obama signed that executive order banning torture a couple of days into his first term, he also s
this mean? joining us, a former media spokesperson for president george w. bush and joe mansion a democrat. mercedes and chris, welcome. mercedes, let me start with you. what does this mean if the senator is saying we're going to hold up these critical nominations until we find out about the president's activity that night? >> we've been waiting for months from the white house to figure out what happened in ban gaza. when you look at what susan rice mentioned on benghazi with her talking points, that basically saying that this was due to a protest. we know that wasn't the case. we've had so much misinformation coming out from the white house and from the administration, and when you look back at panetta's last week in the hearing when he said he called the president at 5:00 and didn't touch base with him again. it's a fallout from the president being too focused on the election, not taking care of the embassador and our folks out there in benghazi that unfortunately had to die because of this. >> chris, do you think it's the president's fault, that he was too focused on the election and di
than you would have under george w. bush, you are an utter, hopeless hypocrite. let me ask you a question. how would you feel about a madeleine albright panel on women and body image. now how do you feel about the larry flint panel on women and body image. how do you feel about your kid and dr. ruth's sex ed class ver tus todd akin? do you feel different about warren buffett versus bernie madoff? of course you do because you're normal. according to the republican logic, if you feel any different about midlan albright and larry flint, you are a hypocrite. look, i voted for president obama because i trust his values and his judgment and i believe that he's a fundamentally responsible actor without gratuitously slamming ex-president bush, i think he displayed lapses in judgment in executing his primary responsibility in commander in chief and put troops in harm's way imprudently. president obama would have exercised better judgment and he has exercised better judgment. the way it stands now, the drone program is exclusively within the domain of the executive. their protocol, their
. that gives me, george w. bush, the power to pretty much do whatever i want. so if i'm going to detain people in guantanamo bay without charging them, i can do that. if i want to declare an american an enemy combat tant and suspend their civil liberties, i can do that. >> now with an expanded drone campaign that ta targeted an american for assassination, it's the obama administration advancing novel legal theories. >> we have have as a basis for action a congressional statute that allows us to to operate and balking at congressional oversite. >> i have nothing on alleged memos regarding potentially classified memphis. >> this president when he was a senator excoriated the bush administration for its presumption of an imperial presidency and presidential powers. now that he's the president, he's lucky he doesn't have a senator obama who is chas chastg him from the floor of the united states senate. >> reporter: some of the obama supporters dabbing at the sand man in their eyes appear to have awakend to the double standard. >> i have to say i was definitely on the critical end of things as were
zarate worked with john brennan during the administration of president george w. bush. ron, good morning. >> good morning. >> what's the hardest question brennan will get and what will he say in answer? >> well i think, charlie he's going to face two types of questions. the first will be a question about his past involvement in policies that were controversial during the bush administration. keep in mind john brennan is a long time cia professional was at the right hand of georgia tenet, the cia director after 9/11 so he'll face questions from democrats about his prior role in detention and rendition policies. he's also going to face these questions that bill plante was just talking about, questions about the targeting of american citizens, the authority to target with lethal force, and what his role and the administration administration's views are on precisely those policies. >> juan as you know president obama was concerned about secrecy in 2009. he ordered the release of those documents about controversial interrogation policies under the presidency o
covered or have been around -- we will never see it again. here he was, facing george w. bush, who had the republican party backing him, all the money, and john mccain win out and held 114 town meetings. he stayed though it -- and stayed there into every question answered. you see the lightbulb go on -- when will we get patient's bill of rights? he said, we will not get it as long as the party is owned by insurance lawyer -- insurance companies and the democrats are owned by trial lawyers. it was refreshing candor. he was totally open to the press. there was a candor and an openness and a welcome this that nobody had seen before and no one has certainly seen since. >> you saw mo udall -- ira member him being tremendously funny -- i remember him being tremendously funny. how long was he in that hospital for? he was not able to talk, was he? >> no. mccain used to read to him. it was a terrible, terrible death, from a long illness. debilitating. it was so sad. he had that viewpoint, that marvelous wit. he seemed aware. >> you work for him. >> i worked for him when he ran for president in
, jerry ford, and that is why george h w bush, another man who i like and admire enormously at the personal level an incredibly thoughtful man -- he reinforced the perception of the republicans as the party of the landed gentry. it became a problem in 1992. >> which campaign did you dislike the most? >> the 2012 campaign was a pretty bad campaign. >> because? >> i do not think either barack obama or mitt romney really likes politics that much. you have to have people who like politics. >> how can you not like politics and run for president? >> you will have to ask them or their doctors. i do not think either one of them get much joy out of it. >> do you still get joy out of it? >> i do. not as much. there was a time when you would stay up late at night and -- everybody would have a funny story -- i think there is less of that now, and last letting down of hair. there is a lot more control in the campaigns. a lot less accessibility. >> i remember, 40 years ago journalists like you would know these folks, having drinks with them and all that. >> i do not know if it is true for
for the bush administration's interrogation policies. brennan served in the cia under president george w. bush. >>> members of the senate intelligence committee will soon learn more about the obama administration's drone program. the white house says the justice department sent classified advice about the program to the senate and house intelligence committees. the documents reportedly state that it is legal for the government to kill u.s. citizens overseas if it believes they're high-ranking terrorists who are trying to kill americans. >>> and a drastic call by the pentagon this morning ahead of what could be huge budget cuts next month. the navy will reduce the number of aircraft carriers in the strategic persian gulf from two to one. that decision comes just one day before the "uss harry truman" was supposed to leave norfolk for the gulf. two carrier groups have been stationed in the region for the majority of the past two years because of rising tensions with iran. >>> this morning, president obama will speak at the national prayer breakfast at the washington hilton in northwest d.c. the p
george w. bush do? that's your standard? we had never allow a power to the presidency that we wouldn't feel comfortable giving to george w. bush? i think we can raise the bar a bit from that. let's keep in mind that the president does have the unilateral power to drop nuclear bombs and destroy the entire planet. do you feel the same about george w. bush having the nuclear codes as you do about president obama. call me a hypocrite, but i sure don't. all right. that does it for the cycle. martin bashir, it is all yours. >> thank you, krystal, and good afternoon. it's friday, february 8th. there's a blizzard slamming the northeast, a top spy getting hit hard, and karl rove singing for his supper. a busy friday indeed. ♪ >> people around here are bracing themselves. snow already starting to fall. >> this is a powerful storm. >> the largest blizzard in decades is poised to swallow the northeast. >> tough questions for cia director nominee john brennan. >> tough questions about drones. >> any american who joins al qaeda will know full well that they have joined an organization that is at

surprised that it's not a bigger part of what we remember as the legacy of george w. bush's presidency. no more bases in saudi arabia. now, though, that has sort of been reversed. at least a little. today "the new york times" reports that some time after 2009, so some time during the presidency of barack obama, the cia built a new base in saudi arabia, a base for u.s. drones. the times reporting that we use that base to launch drone strikes in yemen. the paper has known about the secret cia drone base in saudi arabia for years, but they kept it a secret until today's paper. the "washington post" apparently also knew it existed. these news organizations kept this base a secret for years at the request of u.s. government officials. but the times did make it public now. they chose the timing for making it public now. and according to the managing editor of "the new york times," the reason they decided to make this public today is because of john brennan. quote, because the architect of the base and drone program is nominated to head the cia. and of course when he will have his confirmatio
. there isn't much overlap between critics of george w. bush and barack obama unless you are talking counterterrorism. members of code pink, a group founded during the bush administration to protest the policies of waterboard and detention made their voices heard at yesterday's confirmation hearing for john brennan as cia director. >> they won't even tell congress what country we are killing children in. >> please -- >> senator feinstein. >> if you could please expedite the removal. >> more important than the children of pakistan and yemen? are they more important? do your job! >> the hearing serve as a public discussion of the most controversial counterterrorism policies that began under president george w. bush and, in part, have continued and expanded under president obama. brennan's defense of the secrecy surrounding the administration's most questionable program, targeted assassinations using drone aircraft, was as opaque as the program itself. >> what we need to do is optimize transparency on these issues, but at the same time optimize secrecy and the protection of our national
